Within hours of B&B Ristorante being booted from the Venetian, highly anticipated replacement The Factory Kitchen filed paperwork to completely overhaul the darkened space and create a 152-seat trattoria-style Italian restaurant.
Designed by architect Thomas Schlesser of Design Bureaux, restaurateur Matteo Ferdinandi and chef Angelo Auriana still confidently predict a December debut despite the quick five-month turnaround.
Featuring an estimated construction budget of $3.4 million, the interior will add orange and forest green accents, reclaimed wood tables, Art Deco-style light fixtures, concrete walls and gray banquettes.
The restaurant plans to be open for lunch and dinner, and the bar will provide its own separate menu.
The entrance also opens up to the resort’s Restaurant Row pedestrian corridor that leads to the Palazzo.
Ferdiandi and Auriana debuted the original Los Angeles restaurant in 2013, and are so far confirmed to be importing their mandilli di seta, or handkerchief pasta, and risotto to Las Vegas.
